Neck Damage as a Result of a Whiplash Injury in Kelso
A whiplash injury in Kelso occurs when the head quickly jolts forward and then back. As a result, most people that have whiplash experience damage to their neck. This can range from something minor that will recover within a few weeks, to something much more serious, such as permanent spastic quadriparesis.
Determining how much compensation you could be entitled to for the whiplash injury in Kelso all depends on the severity of your injury. It is impossible to give you a precise figure without knowing the specifics of your case. However, by separating neck injuries into three main categories you should be able to have a much better idea of how much money you could be entitled to…
Severe injuries can result in disabilities. They include damage to the soft tissue that is so significant the disability is of a permanent nature. It also includes little or no movement in the neck, severe headaches on a permanent basis, permanent spastic quadriparesis, or incomplete paraplegia. If any of these apply to your whiplash injury in Kelso you can expect anything from £16,400 to £97,500 when it comes to compensation.
Next we have moderate injuries, which tend to result in a payout of anything from £5,150 to £9,000. This is where there is permanent or recurring pain, serious limitation and the possible need for surgery.
Last but not least we have minor injuries. A minor whiplash injury in Kelso is one that could recover in a couple of weeks, months or at a maximum two years. In this instance the victim is likely to receive anything from £875 to £5,150.
